According to Screen Daily, Print the Legend will explore the process of selling the war to America, and revolve around a Jennifer Lynch-like character whose heroic exploits on the battlefield are later exposed to have been concocted by the US military.

Canadian outfit The Film Farm announced the project in Cannes, where they also unveiled plans to produce a second De Palma film, this time an untitled political thriller with a budget of around $15m.
